morning, everyone. i'm lynn berry. and after weeks of controversy over the obama administration's handling of the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi, the woman in the middle of it all will go face to face with her toughest critics this morning. u.n. ambassador susan rice is heading to capitol hill for a closed door meeting with senators john mccain, lindsey graham and kelly ayotte. they were infuriated after rice called the assault that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans spontaneous and linked to a protest over a youtube video. she will be joined by acting cia director mike morell. the meeting could serve as a real test of whether rice will still be in for a fight over her potential nomination as secretary of state. >>> elsewhere on capitol hill today, it's back to the bargaining table for lawmakers facing a year-end fiscal cliff. yesterday the white house took a hard line insisting tax rates have to rise on the rich and warning that anymore delay on the deal could ruin consumer confidence and hurt holiday retail sales. nbc's tracie potts joins us from washington with

perplexed fashion. .. >> i'll give real credit to the obama administration. they been very good on investment. president obama was the first democrat in 30 years without an open investments. why? because foreign direct investment to the u.s. creates jobs that are disproportionately export oriented, disproportionately manufacturing oriented, and our 50% more likely to be unionized. this is capital we should be fighting for. i think we need to approach in the second obama term with the second -- same degree with confidence going to the point michael me. i think the world agree to engage with us. angela merkel proposed the free trade agreement in her speech issue. i think we should pick up on that and go for it. there's a trans-pacific partnership being negotiated out in asia, chinese are not part of the negotiation but they follow it very, very closely. let's just proceed with confidence because i think people want us to. >> you mentioned china, thank goodness. can't have a discussion with out china. jonathan and i were in china this year. everywhere we went jonathan doggedly woodpan

says a second term obama administration might push. is there one that comes to mind? >> i would like to see -- i would like to see the conversation around gainful employment extend beyond the career and for-profit colleges to the entire sector and shining a light on more of the outcomes there. the second part to me is the biggest challenge with the gainful employment regulations as they stand now, we have suggested our own counter mechanism. the biggest problem is that it's an all or nothing access to cash. you either clear up our and have access to the federal loan dollars from title for -- from title 4, or you get zero out completely. the problem is -- you want to extend access to population to have not had a historical access to education. on the other hand, you are interested in quality in a very admittedly tough environment. you can make quality high because of the wage scale back the access. the other side, if you make that are too low, the lead in all the -- if you make the bar too low, you leave in all the bad actors who do bad things and take advantage and may not ask the right

mills, part of president obama's cabinet for the small business administration. ken, let me start with you. black friday, black thanksgiving night, cyber monday, why do we need a small business saturday on top of it? >> i think the most important thing is we want to celebrate small businesses and celebrate the communities where small businesses are, and what we've seen over the last two years, this is the third year of small business saturday. we've really built a tremendous movement, and small businesses have seen increased in sales, and that's what it's about. what small businesses want are more customers. >> true though, ken, that small businesses kind of needed this holiday because they were getting pinched and squeezed out by things like cyber monday and black friday? >> i think the most important thing is we wanted to celebrate small businesses. this is not big box retailers against small businesses or cyber monday, there's room for all three. what we really felt is we wanted to really put attention to small businesses, the importance that small businesses have to our economy, cr

. in 2008, the obama administration didn't go for it, calculating rationally that probably a settlement of the issue at the time would benefit president ahmadinejad and help him in his bid for a second round. well, we all know what happened. that election didn't work. there was unrest in the streets and the turmoil completely consumed the rest of that year. and so, basically i think this is as good as any time to start negotiations. so what is stopping us from doing this? of course there's a synergy of inaction on both sides and invested political interest to generate a kind of in group solidarity from the image of a demonized other, on the other side. but there is only one way to break this logjam, and that is, i think the two sides should, this block of marble and see the statue inside the block, apply to think to apply pressure, force, but also perspective to breakout a new compromise out of this situation. and there are risks and there are rewards to this. any politician who openly says i'm going to make peace with the other side and resolve this issue would be -- out of

it. the obama administration is ready to fill vacancies. this will have rebels all the way down the hierarchy. what i would like to discuss tonight is how we got from where we are, the politics of patronage, the challenges of recruiting political appointees , how the system results in major delays and managerial destructions and how it undermines presidential leadership and good management. and finally, possible remedies for reforming the system. why do we get mad at government incompetence? because we expect a competent and effective bureaucracy. you create bureaucracies that hire competent workers that bring specialization, expertise, accountability, and continuity. there is no alternative in large-scale systems to organize great amounts of people to accomplish a goal or mission. this is not the way the united states began. it took about a century to figure it out and half a century to implement. the spoils system of the nineteenth century, there has been a constant tension between partisan control political appointees in career experts. let's take a quick look back at the spoils

[laughter] >> oh while. what is next? i don't even want to say what is next. there is stuff that i alluded to before. around the administration continuing the move very strongly which has been in some ways quietly to advance regulatory policy changes, both at the executive level, the president actually signing an executive order and also at the level of the agency, a federal agency, so much bridge work, i will not like the person that i am from b.c. talking about the things that happen in d.c. but to make some real we don't need to have legislation passed in congress, stuff like getting married, same-sex couples counted in the census so it would be great if we got everybody counted in all federal surveys that exist which doesn't seem like a big deal in terms of changing people's lives, but one of the biggest issues is being invisib

cabinet for mitt romney come in for president obama. when you talk about setting up this agency council how do you guard against some sort of volatility in the national energy policy from the changing administration and the policies put in place by one administration carried over the success reforms. >> one person has to take the recommendations seriously and consider that this has merit as the president in the issues i had the the president gave significance and this could be very significant move by the administration is taken seriously by everybody in the government and that in itself was a tremendous incentive to coordination. >> there will also be volatility in a second term there will be changes that have been there for four years or ready to get out but also this isn't something that would be done instantaneously i don't think it would be done under our proposal until the end of the fourth quarter given times so that would be available to the administration i don't think it would be that big a problem although if you had the whole administration you would have a new group
